“Superb in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

We stayed at the Omni Royal Orleans from 20 June until the morning of the 24. From the moment we arrived until checkout, our stay there was an absolute pleasure!

From the elegant atmosphere of a bygone age blended with modern amenities, to the outstanding service offered by each and every staff member we encountered, this establishment is what a first class hotel should exemplify.

The room, a large king with a balconey overlooking Royal St., was excellent! Clean, well furnished and well lit. The bed was very comfortable, we couldn't believe how well we slept! We were originally planning to depart on the morning of the 23rd, but were enjoying ourselves so much we decided to extend another day. The staff was able and more than happy to accomodate us with no problems. Outstanding service!

As this was a vacation/belated honeymoon, it was a pleasure to stay at this hotel and revisit many of the old sites and sounds of my youth and share them with my wife. I would like to extend my deepest thanks and gratitude to each and every staff member of the Omni Royal Orleans for making this such a memorable stay in the Crescent City.

A special note of thanks to Mr. James Lawler at the front desk for his attention to detail and personal commitment to ensure the excellence of our stay. Well done, sir!

If we ever find ourselves in New Orleans again, rest assured the Omni Royal Orleans will be our hotel of choice!

Have stayed here many times on and off over the years - love this hotel - wonderful location - great staff - quiet plush rooms / baths - the pool and fitness center are wonderful and they are remolding and upgrading all the rooms. My favorite place to stay in New Orleans. We will be back here for sure !

Room Tip: ask for AAA discount !

Terrific location easy walk to Jackson Square and other spots. Service super, as Omni would want it.

I was upgraded to a corner room with a great street view. Most comfy beds and pillows. Could have just stayed in bed if there weren't so much to do!

Select Guest program added all sorts of wonderful perks!

I will be coming back for a third trip!

Location, location, location, right? Well, not always. This is a beautifully appointed hotel and was quite comfortable. So why did I only get 4 hours sleep? Paper thin walls. We heard more than we EVER want to hear again! Once we DID fall asleep, the rumbling of trucks down the road at 7am woke us back up. NOT what I expected for a hotel at this price.

We were in the French Quarter for two nights, and had an excellent stay here. The hotel is impeccable. If you can swing it, get a room with a balcony. We had a balcony overlooking Royal St. We enjoyed sitting there in the mornings and evenings, watching the crowds below. Great Hotel, excellent location for the French Quarter.

Room Tip: Balcony!

The staff were brilliant, the doorman said hello to anyone who walked past! They arranged tours for us for no extra cost. The rooms were exactly what I wanted from a French Quarter Hotel. We were lucky enough to be on the court yard terrace with french doors which opened out onto a gas lit seating area where you could hear the jazz wafting in. Location is perfect and the roof top pool was a blessing in the heat of the day, and the heat of the night!

The Omni Royal is a classic, masterpiece of a hotel. My girlfriend and I arrived at this timeless gem in an extreme heatwave and were immediately greeted/cared for by the incredibly cool, informed MARTY, hospitality... doorman... multi-tasker... and go-to person for the hotel (one of many... Armen was also kindly attentive). Our room was impeccably cleaned, always, and had a feel of enlightened antiquity (not stuffy or tired... just good energy here) much like the city of New Orleans. The guests of the hotel were predominately quiet... no loud parties here, thankfully... not our scene. It doesn't seem like the hotel would put up with boisterous guests, and I hope they continue that tradition. The concierge was helpful, and the restaurant made special vegan accomodations for us... although it's known as the Rib Room. This was so nice of them... AND... all of the staff were approachable and thoughtful. The location is RIGHT IN THE QUARTER SANS THE NOISE... QUIET, LOVELY, FRIENDLY, ELEGANT... hey, Omni Royal and Marty... we miss you already... we'll be back. Stay here, and enjoy!
